A low spring tide today combined with high atmospheric pressure was an ideal opportunity for restocking my razorfish supply. It was a lovely spring afternoon and myself and Melissa set off just after mid-day. The sandbanks were just starting to become uncovered when we arrived. I waded out to a bank that was very productive last year while Melissa went onto a sandbank closer to the shore.
There were plenty of razorfish squirting water in the air when the tide began to recede off the crest of the bank and I got to work with the salt. I got through 6 plastic packets. Soon they began pushing up and on to the sand, although not as plentiful as the previous time I was there last year. However, we ended up with two buckets full - 142 razorfish, so that will help replenish my stock in the freezer, although Melissa is wondering where she is going to put her frozen peas and ice cream.
